On December 7th, 2018, Kansas City native Mackenzie Nicole played at The Granada in Lawrence, Kansas as the opening act for Tech N9ne on his 2018 Live Tour.
In April of 2018, Mackenzie Nicole released her debut album titled “The Edge” via Strange Main and she brought a few of these songs to life on stage. Some of the songs she performed from her album included those such as “Preview”, “Dark Side”, “One More” and the album’s title track. The set list didn’t end there as it also included songs like “Hero”, “Warrior”, “Demons” and “Actin Like You Know” which is commonly considered to be the first official song she released at the astonishing age of 16.
Mackenzie Nicole is a natural born artist and it shows in her stage presence, don’t believe me? I think that the rest of the crowd from this sold out venue could persuade you. The crowd, however, may not have been there just for her, but I believe that the MackMob gained a few new members that night.
Mackenzie will once again be an amazing open act for a few of the shows on Tech N9ne’s 2019 tour with their first show being in North Kansas City, Missouri on January 19th. If you are from the KC metro area and love local artists or you simply just love the atmosphere of great shows, then this show could be a great investment!
